Changing proportion dosn’t change something from good looking to ugly. The proportion here on this thread is used to call something bad entirly because it’s unusual. There are people that think anything unusual is unacceptable ugly or otherwise undesirable. Proportion dosn’t change something into an ugly thing. Unusual yes but not ugly.
The image is in the eye of the beholder but not the understanding of the beauty or uglyness therein. People that study and have experience with the elements of art and design know beauty or uglyness when they see it .. usually. They know the difference. However it isn’t black and white always like a number but most of the time the difference can be determined. However associations can at times interfere with perception.

As to “if nothing else works, add a flybridge” that can lead to normality or what we’re used to seeing. And if it’s unusual it will likely be seen as ugly. An abrasive image. But the elements of art and design being line, light, texture, shape, color and similar things will determine if it’s beautiful or not. Changing the aspect ratio of the image of a vehicle will not change the elements of art or/and design.

I never did see the connection between the Krogen Whale Back and the GL whale back ore carries.

Brings back memories. I dove on the remains of one of the whale backs sunk off NJ and looked at the Meteor in Superior, WI while cruising Lake Superior. An interesting idea that may have worked better with modern nautical engineering.

Nordic Tug Prototype

New dock neighbor, a obvious 26 foot Nordic Tug hull with a different house. Spoke to the owner, (3'd) who indicated it to be the prototype hull. I asked about the house which is quite different. Owner only knew the boat was built in l980 which seems about the time Nordic Tug started. The power is original 4-236 Perkins and the boat had been on the hard for 12 years prior to this ownership.
I inquired of Nordic Tug without a response, as to the orthogonality of the indicated remark on this being the original.

I have seen boats stripped to the stringers and rebuilt with a completely different cabin. I don't know if it's been done to a Nordic but that is kind of what that boat looks like to me. If so, the company may never acknowledge it's existence unless they had a hand in the build.

Riviera 47 without FB

Riviera does build non FB boats,but not a 47, in 2003. I`m not sure they ever built a 47. The clue is in the brokers words, out of "misfortune". Maybe it went under a low bridge,or the FB was hit with a crane, who knows, maybe the broker. But for Aussies, and those outside Oz with a sneaking admiration for Rivs,it is interesting, and for a planing cruiser, not bad looking. My guide dog certainly thought it was.

"This one" is the USS Edson. She's a Forrest Sherman Class Destroyer. I grew up on the USS Turner Joy DD-951. It was great being a "Tin Can" Sailor.

Queenship Sea Spirit 60'

Why am I liking this more than a Nordy 60'? Might be because it has a hinged mast instead of an ugly drystack. And the draft is advertised as under 5'. She seems to have all the right stuff for passage making. Now if I just had a spare $ million and chump change....

Great looking boat. One would think they could have found room for a 3rd stateroom for the crew. SHRUG

Yep, lots to like about this setup! I've kept an eye on a sister ship for a while, just need a bit more funding!

FANTASTICALLY BEAUTIFUL boat. Of course for FL, it would need A/C and possibly stabilizers plus a washer dryer and water maker, for convenience.

I looked at all the pictures 3 times and realized I was having an involuntary orgasms.

A bit more than $385K
